“When It Comes” marks the final video of our Room 205 visit with High Places. Forming their artistic partnership in May 2006, Rob Barber and Mary Pearson have produced numerous recordings, including two long players. The most recent of which, High Places vs. Mankind (Thrill Jockey Records), marks the first release since the band’s relocation from New York City to Los Angeles, California. Serendipitously, partnering the dense atmospherics and dark beats of High Places with Room 205’s rainbow arrayed yarn sculpture turned out to be wonderfully fun.
Thanks again to Rob and Mary, and to director Otto Arsenault and set designer Sophia Rubio. Enjoy.
